Dr Oz: The “Oldie-Wed Game”
Dr. Oz thought since there is a Newlywed show for couples it was only fair to do something similar for couples who have been married for a long time, like he and his wife Lisa who have been married for 28 years! He calls his game the “Oldie-Wed Game” and he invited another couple you might recognize to play along with him and his wife. Joe and Melissa Gorga, married for 9 years, from the Real Housewives of New Jersey took the challenge to see just how well they know each other. How would you do if you played the “Oldie-Wed” game with your spouse? Here are some of the fun facts we learned about Dr. Oz and Lisa during this fun game.
- Eating beans gives Dr. Oz the most gas.
- Lisa wishes Dr. Oz would shave his back hair.
- Dr. Oz kisses his wife an average of 7 times per day.

Dr Oz: Reasons to Go Vegan
Dr. Oz says his wife Lisa has been feeding him vegan foods their entire marriage, but he still loves and eats meat on a regular basis. He explained why it is important to give your body a break from meat every once in awhile, though, because it is good for your health and to keep your body “regular”. Did you know it can literally take days for your body to digest meat as opposed to hours if you eat plant-based foods? Dr. Oz says this is because of the amount of fiber, which has many health benefits, including preventing constipation.
Dr Oz: Lisa Oz’s Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers
Lisa Oz says her goal is not to “replace” meat because if you love meat that simply is not going to happen. Instead, she wants you to try new foods that are delicious in their own right, but also good for you. Here is a delicious vegan recipe you can try tonight!
Here is what you need for 4 Portobello Mushroom Burgers:
- 4 Portobello mushrooms, stems removed
For the Marinade:
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 3/4 cup sake
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Juice of one lemon
- 4 crusty rolls
- 1/2 cup watercress
- Yellow and red bell peppers, grilled (if desired)
- Vegan mayo (optional)
Here is what you need to do:
- Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Put the mushrooms (gills up) on a cooking sheet and carefully spoon the marinade over the mushrooms every 10 minutes for a half hour.
- Using a grill brush, spread olive oil on the grill. Preheat to medium or high heat.
- Put the mushrooms (gills up) on the grill. Shut the lid and allow mushrooms to cook for around 5 minutes, raising the lid to baste with the marinade every few minutes. For criss-crossed grill marks, rotate the mushrooms 90 degrees and cook for about 3 additional minutes.
- Carefully turn the mushrooms over and cook for another 3 minutes. Cook times may vary depending on your grill, so gently push down where stems used to be. Once the mushrooms are soft and juicy, remove from the grill and allow to rest for a few minutes. If adding peppers, baste them with olive oil before grilling.
- Build your sandwich with the mushroom, watercress, peppers and mayo!
Dr Oz: Vegan Diet Health Benefits
- Low Saturated Fat
- Plenty of Protein
While Dr. Oz realizes a vegan diet is not for everyone, he asks you try it just one day a week, if for nothing else than to improve your bowel habits. He also added how proud he is of his wife, Lisa, especially she now has her very own television show!
